Minibus Association of Malawi (MAM) will next week petition Minister of Finance to consider reducing the Excise duty charged on buses when importing into the country.
MAM Chairperson Mr Kamanga confirmed of the development in an interview.
In his speech, Kamanga said the Excise duty charged when importing buses into the country is very exorbitant and this makes them fail to import more buses into the country.
He further said the duty is acting as a barrier for more business players to join the field to ease the transport problem in the country.
Kamanga said the duty is also the one contributing to the high cost of minibus fairs in the country.
